life hack: remember to compliment people on qualities other than their looks. remind them of their kindness, thoughtfulness, and intelligence. tell them about how powerful and capable they are.


Art Writer’s Wednesday 23 - Artists on Tumblr

Michael Ostermann | on Tumblr (Austria)

A disquieting allure radiates from the works of illustrator Michael Ostermann, whose visual aesthetic plays on a cunning fusion of the beautiful and the bizarre. With his digital illustrations that seamlessly hybridise fine art, digital art and fashion photography, the Vienna-based artist transforms editorial shoots by assigning them to surreal, fantasy-like and even somewhat futuristic narratives that reveal their dark nature.

Such narratives are a particularly intriguing aspect of Ostermann’s work, and are brought to life through realistic photomanipulation techniques and a skilled layering of illustrated detail. The use of complex angular shapes and geometric motifs lends his art an alien quality which, when combined with the ever-present themes of death and the macabre, reveals a particularly frightening edge to the photographs which he reworks. Although dominantly black and white, these details fill each piece with a richness of texture and tones; they enhance a setting’s mood and a model’s character, and appear to blend in almost naturally every time.

Ostermann’s work, although powerful and sharp, still conveys a surprising delicateness through its play on soft contrasts and shadows – and this, one could argue, is what makes each piece so curious and compelling. He produces art which not only demonstrates his peculiar vision, but also remains a real treat to the eye as it blends, repeats and multiplies layers of abstractions and beauty in the most fantastic ways.
